Potted Plant Green Tea Ice Cream - 1920 Tea Club (Fresno, CA)

1920 Tea Club
732 W Bullard Ave
Fresno, CA 93704
Yelp reviews

I've noticed that this has been a food fad lately at boba and other Asian tea places. It looks like a plant, but it's basically ground up Oreos/chocolate cookies and mint leaves. I usually see this topping with milk teas, but I got a green tea ice cream this time. Honestly, my ice cream was good (and that potted plant topping was good!), but I didn't love the drinks my parents and brother had. I'd go back to try other things like their boba drinks. Their snacks look good too.

Klatch Coffee - Rancho Cucamonga

Klatch Coffee
8916 Foothill Blvd, Ste. C
Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730
Other locations here (Ontario, San Dimas, LAX, Korea)

I was about to meet up with a friend in the Rancho area but wanted to prep for work for an hour or so beforehand, so I stopped by this place. My cappuccino was delicious and pretty! Too bad we don't have a Klatch in the Central Cal area. I love fancy cappuccinos (as long as they also taste good). I also recommend Augie's in Riverside, Blue Bottle in SF, and Redlands and Caffe Ladro in Washington.

Rosemary's Family Creamery - Bakersfield, CA

Rosemary's Family Creamery

My David's Tan & White ("Vanilla and Toasted Almond Ice Cream with yummy Marshmallow and our homecooked Caramel sauce with Nuts, Whipped Cream, and a Cherry") was huge and delicious, but my parents helped me eat it. The whipped cream tasted like real cream and was thick. The almond ice cream was delicious and not overwhelmingly almond-y. The homecooked caramel sauce and marshmallow sauce were really good too! So happy with my pick.

You can see my brother's bright green lime Brad's Sherbet Shake ("A refreshing mixture of Sherbet, flavored Syrup and Sparkling Water blended to perfection!"). He finished it quickly and just told me a few minutes ago again that he really liked it.

Pizza Five85 - Moreno Valley, CA

Pizza Five85 - Various Locations in CA & AZ
12510 Day St, Moreno Valley, CA 92553

I haven't tried Pieology yet, but I've been to Pizza Five85 in Moreno Valley twice now and was very happy with both pizzas. It's like a Subway but for pizzas. You just say what you want (type of crust, sauce, cheese, and toppings) and they bake it right there in front of you and then out pops a delicious personalized pizza with fresh ingredients. I love how you can add all kinds of veggies and meat options, including ham, cilantro, basil, chopped or cherry tomatoes, artichoke, mushrooms, olives, diced garlic, feta, etc.). SO GOOD!
